Mets | Frank Francisco closer to returning
Tue, 07 May 2013 15:02:30 -0700

New York Mets RP Frank Francisco (elbow) has pitched back-to-back days with Single-A St. Lucie and is closer to returning from the disabled list. He should have at least another outing in the minors. "Frankie has got to show us that he can pitch back-to-back days up here -- that he's strong enough," manager Terry Collins said. "We're talking three days in a row. Can he do that? The one thing I don't think we're ready to do is start to juggle our bullpen at this particular moment when Bobby has done such a good job. We'll wait until Frankie gets here to make those determinations." Francisco is within 10 days of returning from his 30-day rehab assignment.
